Jared Smith, Representative Eric Massa’s Communications Director, has sent out a press release announcing that Time Warner has abandoned their Internet Cap proposal. He thanks all the grass roots movers and shakers for their support, and that means you. From the statement:

“We’re delighted that commonsense prevailed,” said Rep. Eric Massa. “The people of Western New York spoke and I heard them loud and clear. Together we have won and I am glad that I was able to play a small part in bringing about this change. This is a true grassroots victory, but we will move forward with our legislation to ensure that any future plans to charge customers based on how much they download do not spring up anywhere else.”
